Brooklyn Heights 1 bedroom

This Brooklyn Heights 1-bedroom is priced $1,095 below the neighborhood median.

Brooklyn Heights is known for having some of the best views and most stately housing stock in the entire city. What the neighborhood is not typically known for is affordability. This cozy Brooklyn Heights 1-bedroom bucks that notion, however, coming in far below the neighborhood median rent and offering plenty of other positives to boot.

Address: 104 Hicks St. #3C

Price: $2,300

Size: 1-bedroom

Neighborhood: Brooklyn Heights

Best feature: The location here can’t be beat. Potential renters would be mere blocks from the Brooklyn Heights Promenade and Brooklyn Bridge Park, countless cafes and restaurants, and several major train lines.

Located in an 1840s row house, the unit boasts 12-foot ceilings and 8-foot windows with views of a garden on neighboring Pineapple Street. The unit is compact, but the high ceilings give it an airy feel. The layout squeezes in storage space, a real kitchen with a dishwasher, and full-size appliances. The bedroom looks like it can fit a queen-size bed, if not much more.

Why it’s a deal: The median rent for a 1-bedroom in Brooklyn Heights is $3,395. At just $2,300, this unit is a clear bargain.

Biggest drawback: If you have large furniture, you may want to swap it out —  the layout of this apartment isn’t going to accommodate a sprawling sectional. But for a highly coveted Brooklyn Heights address at this price, you can’t be too picky.
